at a music concert taken down nfl tackle style by security. >> thank you so much for joining us today. >> we enjoyed it. "fox & friends" starts right now. >> bye. >>gretchen: good morning. it is tuesday, august 6, 2013. hope you're going to have a great day. i'm gretchen carlson. thanks for sharing your time. that terror threat is not over. in fact, an attack may be imminent. another u.s. embassy ordered to evacuate. new details. >>steve: the republican party take the stand. the ultimatum it is giving cnn and nbc for planning to air pro-hillary clinton movies before the 2016 election. wait until you hear this, judge, and he never saw it coming. >> a movie called stupido.
>> crashing the interview for his brand-new view is i. "fox & friends," tuesday, august 6, starts right now. >> bonn journo. >>gretchen: all right. the judge is here today. >> i don't eat pasta and pizza. >>gretchen: you look amazing. >>steve: judge napolitano great to have you today. the judge used to be on all the time in the early morning hours helping us sign things on and then he got busy writing books. he's writing another one as well. >> the expansion of executive power after 9/11 comes out in the spring. as if i don't have enough
to write about. >>steve: no kidding. >>gretchen: we're going to go through a couple of headlines and then chat about the news of the day. we have a shocking story. a man accused of shooting at a town hall meeting in pennsylvania leaving three people dead. the 59-year-old had an ongoing dispute with the town. his property was condemned. he was kicked out of his home. police say he showed up at the meeting and started shooting before being tackled by a hero. >> it was pretty chaotic and hectic. i wasn't there but phone conversations i had in the beginning was very, very hectic. >> disturbing for us. here it is in your hometown. >>gretchen: two other people were shot, one in critical condition at this hour. the suspect was also shot in the take-down but he was treated and is now in the custody of police. it could be a rough start for a lot of people who have to fly this morning. a computer system crashed overnight kpwapbgting more than 4 -- i am pwabgting more than 400 airports. this is what the problem looked like in san
francisco. hours long delays for many flights. the system is back up and running now but some airlines are warning of a ripple effect of delays throughout the day. if you have to fly go on-line, check the status of your flights. >> tkraoeg -- alex rodriguez slapped with a record suspension but he was still playing ball last night in chicago. the reception from the crowd, though, not very warm. rodriguez was suspended 200-plus games by major league baseball for his alleged connection to a miami clinic which sold performance enhancing drugs. he immediately appealed. the process expected to keep him on the field through the end of the season. 12 other players were banned 50 games each. all could return though in time for the playoffs. >> jimmy kimmel gets revenge on matt dammon. >> a movie called estupido
with an arrow pointed towards me. >> it surprised damon while promoting his new movie. damon tongue in cheek was not happy. the two have a long standing feud apparently. seven months ago damon hijacked kimmel's show. >>steve: we've got a fox news alert on this tuesday morning. the shutdown at those 19 embassies continues this morning. what's interesting is suddenly overnight the state department ordered the embassy of yemen evacuated. apparently they said that there's an extremely high security threat level, and this all goes back to some of the intel that we intercepted over a couple of days ago. we'll tell you more about what we know, who is talking betwixt each other.
places are shut down around the arab world. >>gretchen: al-zawahiri was second in command now first in command because osama bin laden has been killed. apparently he was having communications with the leader of al qaeda's arabian peninsula affiliate. a gentleman named nasiral wuhayshi. that is what fox news has been able to confirm, what originally set off the fear there was a major and imminent attack underway. i think what's become more scary, judge, is yesterday during the press briefing with jay carney, the president's spokesperson, he would not rule out the fact this could be on united states soil as well. >> i hate when they do that. they shouldn't scare people nedlessly. first of all, anything is possible and anything is potential. the question is is it more likely than not. the two pictures on the skraoeb, when the white house -- on the screen, when the revealed they were having communication with each other, and i'm glad
they have it, we've declared war on it, they are in charge of that organization, they're not americans, they have every right to listen to them, did the white house reveal what we know about them in order to justify the president spying on them? in doing so, did he tip them off? guys, get rid of those cell phones you're using because the people in the united states are listening to you. >>steve: you make a great point. they burned that avenue whether it was tapped into cell phones or anything like that. while you were talking i got an update. apparently in addition to the u.s. staff evacuated at the embassy at yemen, all united kingdom staff also evacuated from yemen as well. why? apparently two things. one, the worry is that the terrorists could already be in place with their order. they're just stand by awaiting the trigger mechanism, whatever that might be. plus also it sounds as if they have devised some sort of what's referred to an ingeniously -- ingenious
liquid explosive. they would dip ordinary clothes into liquid to make them explosive. once they dry it is undetectable and that is terrifying. >> a human being approaching somebody at an airport would explode especially after that human being has gone through some kind of security check which doesn't detect what their clothes have soaked in. >>gretchen: a yemini bomb maker made this, responsible for making the clothes for the underwear bomber. he is also apparently responsible for coming up with surgically implanted bombs, which is another concern besides these new type of clothing terrorists may have on. >>steve: we got all this information from that phone call or that text between al-zawahiri and the guy who runs al qaeda in the
arabian peninsula. as soon as they got that out, they alerted everybody something's big. then the white house leaked, judge, what you're talking about, more detailed information. it was between this guy and that guy. that's extraordinary. they don't ever give that kind of detail. chat sweet, former homeland security official and c.i.a. official was on with laura ingraham. he can't believe they spilled these beans. >> the more disturbing aspect of this is that to release any information that acknowledges that we actually had the phone numbers and intelligence for both the leader of al qaeda headquarters and the leader of al qaeda in the arabian peninsula, we've now just burned that source. those phones are gone and those leaders will not use them again. we have now unfortunately cut off a major source of intelligence on the two of the top leaders. to do that, it takes a very significant threat and it's now a reality that we're tpw-g to have to find new
sources of intel. >> i think mr. sweet is 100% on the mark. and if the white house is revealing secrets, does that sound familiar? they're trying to prosecute a guy in moscow who revealed secrets. to make the white house look good, the revelation tips off or hands to the enemy, that is not good. >>gretchen: i think it is a little different, remember the allegation that the white house is trying to make itself look good when it put out the terror kill list, it made president obama look like he was strong on terror because it was before the election because there was much criticism about him not being strong. i think this is a tiny bit different. we're in the middle of a huge potential imminent attack and i don't know if i'm ready to criticize it from a political point of view yet. >> should the president say we have your phone numbers, jerks? >>steve: remember last week all the talk was about phony substantials and the n.s.a. and the i.r.s. and suddenly we get this alert
that something could be happening in the arab world somewhere toward western interests, and it is pro-administration. we've heard this a million times. judge, i'm with you on this. it does look like -- >>gretchen: what if something huge does happen? i think we should keep our eye on the prize. >>steve: just that they would reveal such detail. they burned a source and a method, and that's the problem. they could still say be careful if you're in these areas. but to be so specific to make it look like the administration is working overtime, look at these fantastic avenues of intel, that is troubling. >> another scandal on a lesser scale the republican national committee is threatening to blackball nbc and cnn from the republican presidential debates if the networks don't scratch their pro-hillary clinton films. i mean, what kind of sense does this make for nbc and cbs -- >>gretchen: cnn. >> thank you. to be publishing films
about hillary clinton. could you imagine if fox published one about mitt romney or george w. bush. >>gretchen: there would be a lot of talk about it. cnn released a statement last night saying their cnn tphr*eupls -- films division, nbc announced a mini series that would be about hillary expected to be released before the 2016 presidential election. i guess the fine line here if you're cnn or nbc is that she hasn't officially announced she's running for president. if that happens, is it fair and balanced? >> which hillary is going to be in the movie? the lauded secretary of state or the shunted first lady? >>steve: right. one of the films starts in 1998 and that means it leaves out a bunch of the scandals from the clinton era. we've got a list of some of the stuff she's been involved in over the past. what's interesting is it
was made very clear it's not only something that would be detrimental to the republicans running for president but also the other democrats as well. >> the fact of the matter is you've got two networks that are potentially spending millions of dollars promoting a person that they know is at least doing the dance and getting ready for a run for president, and i think it's about time that our party stands up and protects the party and our candidates from networks that are not in the business of promoting our party. they're not in the business of promoting our candidate. they're not in the business of doing anything but promoting the democratic party. and i'm not going to sit around and watch this happen anymore. >>gretchen: i think that's interesting because a lot of republicans -- or people have been criticizing the republican party for not being more proactive during the campaign, taking a stand and being on top of the story. in this case i think it's interesting. what he's threatening to do is saying republicans aren't going to show up for debates on any of those
networks if you continue -- >> republicans are going to have a very, very hot winter and spring of 2016. we got a foretaste of that last week between new jersey governor chris christie and kentucky senator rand paul. could you imagine if two of the networks are excluded from the primaries if those two go at each other? >>steve: if cnn does a republican debate, i can't imagine if candy crowley will be the moderator because last time she took a side and she was wrong. >>gretchen: coming up on the show, take a quick look at your tv screen. a truck goes right off and over to the road below and the driver survived. all right. >> stuart varney is here on this story. one of the country's most influential newspapers, "the washington post," just sold the founder of

and what steve jobs did. >>steve: give me examples >> basoz takes all the company profits and plows it back into the business. traditionally wall street doesn't like that. it wants a piece of those profits -- >>andrew: would it be fair to say he got this for a steal, that it was worth maybe ten times this much money ten years ago? >> maybe so, but that was when the "washington post" was a newspaper you bought physically unread. that's not true today. >>andrew: was it a distress sale? >> no. he's bought content. putting this on to his amazon entire for his subscribers. that's another thing very similar between bezos and steve jobs. bezos makes amazon very user friendly, just like jobs made the iphone, the ipod, the ipad
friendly. bezos extremely private, the same as steve jobs. amazon is the same in the sense the stock went straight up. >>gretchen: he claims he's going to keep amazon separate. what i am interested in knowing is why would this be a good investment deal for him? for "the washington post" it's obvious because newspapers are struggling. >> he's a very wealthy guy and he's taking over one of the great brands in american journalism. he's buying it. the guy's worth billions of dollars. >>andrew: did you advise him on this deal? >> no, sir, i did not. this is a total shock. nobody saw this coming. who would have thought? >>steve: i think it's a preview of where amazon is going. it used to be just a place where you shopped. now you've got a lot of content on there. obviously he wants editorial content. >> that is what he wants. he's building up content. amazon has expanded into all kinds of new areas just
like steve jobs expanded. >>andrew: what are you doing at 9:20? >> i'm going to host an appearance by you, i believe and otherwise tell the world about their money. >>steve: thank you, stuart. >>gretchen: coming up, after years of delays, we're hours away from the start of the tpao*rt -- fort hood shooting trial. >>andrew: did you know there are foods you may eat every day that are making you sick? dr. david samadi is here next. ♪

>>andrew: major nidal hasan's victims must suffer twice. first when they were shot and then when government called the murders at fort hood workplace violence. after years of delays they can finally get justice. joining us where the trial is about to get underway is dan. what can we expect today? >> we are a little more than three and a half hours away from opening statements in what promises to be a very emotional and very unusual military trial, one of the big questions arising from today's court proceedings, will major nidal hasan be making an opening statement? he is representing himself having dismissed all of the defense lawyers assigned to his case by the army. hasan accused of murdering 13 people and wounding dozens more in the 2009 shooting here at the fort hood army post. if convicted, he is facing a possible death sentence. the presiding judge in the case yesterday seated the
all-officer jury, or panel as it's called in the military. the judge has also indicated that at some point hasan could take the witness stand and testify in his own defense. he has on a number of occasions expressed radical islamic beliefs spelz -- as well as anti-american views and he said he believes america is at war with islam. this trial 0 could take a month. >>gretchen: consider this the next time you eat a meal. at least nine million people in the united states suffer from a foodborne illness caused by bacteria each year. what foods are the most dangerous and how can you keep your family safe? dr. david samadi, fox news medical a team, is here to help us figure out what to do. there was a big scare that went across the country. the first thing you're talking about is
vegetables. what should we do. >> this comes up all the time. cantaloupes, about a year ago thousands of people got affected. these are avoidable problems. nine million people are affected. when it comes to food and vegetables, a lot of any mall feces, farmers may not be washing their hands, most of the stuff we're talking about is salmonella and e. coli. what you have to do, really wash your fruits and srepbl tabls thoroughly. -- vegetables though -- thoroughly. when it comes to cantaloupes, you need to wash them, dry them up. that is the way you get rid of bacteria. most people take a knife and already the bacteria gets in. >>gretchen: even with at orange, scrub the outside before you peel it.
let's talk about eggs. >> same thing. the shells outside could be contaminated. salmonella is a big deal. make sure you wash it. nobody thinks of washing their eggs. also wash your hands afterwards. certainly cook it. boil it and make sure you don't take raw eggs as much as you can. that's when salmonella can get in. >>gretchen: what about meat? we've heard that can also have bacteria but what can we do about it? >> meat is mostly e. coli and that can be resistant. the way you get rid of this is to cook your meat very well. 160 degrees is when you get rid of some of the this resistant e. coli. after you're done with dinner, make sure you retpreupbl rate them -- refrigerate them to about 40 degrees or less. cross contamination is a big deal. the same knife you used to clean up your meat and use your fruit, avoid that.
all the time after dealing with meat or chicken wash your hands and make shire you don't have cross contamination. >>gretchen: seeds and nuts, what do you do with that? >> those are very rare. sunflower seeds from michigan, unfortunately it is unavoidable. there is nothing you can about this except pay attention to industry warnings. if you see something like this, avoid eating that for this period. washing your hands, paying attention, keeping your kitchen clean, no cross contamination and you should be fine. >>gretchen: thanks, dr. samadi. did you hear about this story? a python escapes its enclosure, ends up strangling those two young boys. this morning a criminal investigation underway. take a look at your tv screen. a truck goes off an overpass to the road below and the driver survives.

like that. >>andrew: here's what a-rod would say. he would say he never failed a drug test, that the evidence of what he did with this biogenecist is their version and not his and he's entitled to a fair day in court. he will get that fair day with an arbitrator. >>steve: the commissioner of baseball's office would say mr. a-rod, we investigated you for a year and you did everything you could to obstruct the investigation. >>andrew: you even tried to -- >>steve: buy the files, the medical record of biogenecist. >>andrew: could you imagine? you try to buy the adversary so you can own and destroy the records. >>steve: it's brilliant but it failed. he had a press conference yesterday but he would not answer whether he took

seven-year-old were at a sleepover at a friend's home in canada above the pet store. the python somehow escaped its cage, got into the ventilation system. it is believed the snake strangled them as they slept. a 17-year-old accused of killing a soccer referee entered a plea. he punched him and the referee slipped into a coma and passed away. >> you have to change. it is not right to do what you did. it's not right. you messed up. >>gretchen: the boy received a maximum sentence which means staying in juvenile custody until he's 21. >>gretchen: the driver of a delivery truck of the boston globe involved in a
horrific accident. it was all caught on camera. the truck was mangled but the driver managed to escape. the woman in the other car charged with drunk driving. her license has been suspended ten times before. those are your headlines. >>steve: why is she still driving, judge? >>andrew: she shouldn't be driving. she's driving illegally, and this is the consequence. >>steve: in other news, tyke to -- time to look at the weather. a new hurricane formed in the pacific. it is packing 75 miles per hour winds. maria molina nice and dry on the plaza, but out west it's building. >> that's right. we have that hurricane to talk about. hurricane henriette. it is now classified a hurricane. it was a tropical storm earlier this morning. maximum sustained wind at about 75 miles per hour and you could be looking at
stronger wind gusts than that. one bit of good news, for hawaii, it is headed in that direction, cooler water to the west of it so we're forecasting this storm system into the weekend and it could potentially be a depression as we head into this weekend before it could impact sections of hawaii with areas of heavy rain and strong wind. keeping an eye on hurricane henriette. otherwise across parts of the central u.s. we're expecting showers and thunderstorms today. potential severe weather possible. temperature-wise, on the hot side across parts of the south. widespread triple digits. in new york city, very pleasant. high temperature at 80 degrees. but we are expecting that rain to move eastward as we head into tomorrow. we'll need the umbrellas soon. for today, enjoy it. >>steve: more now on a fox news alert. a man accused of shooting a town hall meeting in pennsylvania leaving three people dead, we have a
reporter live with the latest. good morning to you. >> good morning, steve. i think what's so terrifying about this is that it happened in a regular township meeting. this is the municipal building. ten minutes after the meeting started the alleged shooter busted in and started shooting. state police say he is 59-year-old rockney newell. he went inside and shot several people, came back into the parking lot for a second weapon, a handgun, that is when people inside the meeting tackled him to the ground and shot him in the leg with his own gun. state police say they believe the motive behind the shooting was an ongoing argument over his property which the township recently condemned. they say he had plenty of issues with sewage. he was a self-proclaimed
junk collector. but there are three victims here today. one of them is believed to be a township official. the other two have not been named. there were also three people injured. one is in critical condition. the other grazed by a bullet and the third believed to have a heart attack. the suspected shooter is in police custody this morning. >>steve: thank you very much. >>gretchen: next on the rundown, steven spielberg signed on to direct a movie about chris kyle, a big development because apparently he just pulled out of that film. >>andrew: tony stewart rushed to the hospital. we'll tell you what went terribly wrong. ♪ ♪

letter saying that we have to worry about global security and what's going on in the world. the problem is, you supply weapons to israel and you supply weapons to egypt. why supply any of them weapons? they're only going to turn around and a, use them against us or b, use them against each other. so we're promoting wars. >> andrew: you're a vet the marine corps. once a marine u a a marine. >> absolutely. >> andrew: does this president understand the role of the military and defending america? >> no, not at all. first of all, when you send people into battle, you need to be fighting for something that you believe in. we're worrying about the security in this country and it's part and parcel that he needs to do what's necessary to secure the country, and if he
needs to surveil everybody as they call it, it's not a big deal. the reason being, and you know with we are with our credit cards, they know where we are with our phones and they know where we are with our cars, there are a lot of different ways. who cares whether he's listening on the phone or not? >> steve: i do. >> andrew: some do care. >> steve: here is one of the responses you got from the president. thank you for your thoughtful words. it reminds me of what is best about our country. now, famously, the president is said to read ten letters from ten americans every day. is that why you started this, hoping you would be one of the ten? >> no. i put up a challenge in quite a few of the letters. i didn't like being called a coward by eric holder. knowing my background a little bit. i don't have a problem with meeting them and talking about
race relations. i'm not black. i'm not white. i am an american and i'm proud of it. any time you want to talk about racial issues, i'm ready. >> gretchen: because you're an american, you have freedom of speech and you had the ability to write letters to the president and i'm quite frankly, surprised you got 45 responses back. let's see how do you with your next book. great to meet you. >> and you, too. thank you for having me. >> steve: the book is called "mr. president, what are you doing to america." four minutes before the top of the hour. coming up, he says the president's policies are making america look like a bunch of cowards. congressman louis gohmert on the decision to pull out of our embassies instead of staying put. >> gretchen: and the top party school revealed. if you're a parent with a kid in college, pay attention. which school made it to the top spot this year? >> andrew: steve knows. >> steve: i know ♪

[ laughter ] >> gretchen: you have a much better voice. great to have you here, especially if you need legal advice. >> steve: we got a lot of that. >> gretchen: we have headlines fir before we chat about the news of the day. new details about a story that unfoiledded. a man accused of shooting up a
town hall meeting in pennsylvania leaving three people dead. he had an ongoing dispute with the town. his property was condemned, he was kicked out of his home. he showed up at the meeting and started shooting before being tackled by a hero. >> on the approach to the township building, he began to fire a long gun into the township building through the windows of the building. he continued to advance on the building firing as he walked forward, firing through the windows. >> gretchen: two other people were shot. one in critical condition at this hour. the suspect was also shot in the take down, but he was treated and is now in police custody. after years of delays, we're hours away from beginning of the fort hood shooting trial. major nidal malik hasan charged with murdering 13 people. he's representing himself in the trial. he does face the death penalty if convicted. many of the victims speaking out say they're being forced to suffer twice now.
first by being shot, second by our government who continues to call this a workplace shooting and not an act of terror. it could be bumpy skies for anyone flying today. last night, a computer system crashed, impacting airports around the world. this is san francisco airport. we're talking hours long delays for many flights. even though the system is back up and running this morning, some airlines are warning of that ripple effect. delays throughout the day. if airplanes couldn't get to their destinations last night. if you have to fly, call your airline or go on-line. never before seen photos released. this is marilyn monroe with american troops during the korean war. the star performed for the soldiers who were rapping up their time on the front lines. the photographs are being auctioned off. the starting price, $400. those are your headlines this morning. >> steve: we've got a fox news alert this morning. you know 19 embassies and
diplomatics post throughout the arab world have been shut down for the week. initially it was one day. but they've expanded it through the week. this morning the news is that the department of state has ordered all personnel out of the embassy of yemen because of a high threat level there. apparently they've already been flown out. the department of defense does have some personnel left on the ground there in yemen. also all members of the united kingdom staff have been evacuated as well. this as news comes from cbs that apparently terrorists could already be in place. they're just waiting to be told do it. >> andrew: abc news is reporting that terrorists could be using, quote, an ingenious and undetectable liquid explosive in which their clothing is dipped into the liquid and they put it on and the liquid dries and it looks normal you and don't know it's there and it goes off. >> gretchen: a guy named ibrahim
heard about it because he created it. this is the yemeni bomb maker who also is responsible for making the underwear bomb. he apparently is also responsible for coming up with the surgically implanted bombs which is another fear in this latest scare. and the scary thing about these clothes is that they are not detectable in the security devices that you walk through at the airport. >> steve: the reason we know all of these details which started in a general sense, i think on friday, saturday, we got the news, something big is cooking in the arab world and they could be targeting american or western interests, is because apparently through the big nsa program, they somehow tapped into either al-zarqawi hare's phone or e-mail account. they got surveillance and extraordinarily, somebody, probably in the administration, leaked to the press the details that apparently al-zarqawi hare,
they were discussing we're going to do something big. although no specifics. just the fact that there is a leak out there seems like they've gone over the line. >> andrew: here is what i want to talk about. is it right for the government to reveal how it knows what it found out in order to make the government look good? look, we know the nsa thing is very controversial. they are listening to the phone calls and reading the e-mails or have the ability to, of 300 million americans. so are they justifying that by saying, aha, we listened to the phone calls of these two guys in yemen and should they be telling these two monsters that make bombs that they have their phone numbers? >> steve: fisa was supposed to be for it. those guys over there, it's okay to spy on them. it's the spying on us over here that bothers a lot of people. >> gretchen: so there was another gentleman, former c.i.a. official who was on o'reilley last night. here is his thoughts.
>> the mo more disturbing aspect of this is that to release any information that acknowledges that we actually had the phone numbers and intelligence for both the leader of al-qaeda headquarters and the leader of al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula, we've now just burned that source. those phones are gone and those leaders will not use them again. so we have now, unfortunately, cut off a major source of intelligence on the two of the top leaders. to do that, it takes a very significant threat and it's now reality that we're going to have to find new sources of intel. >> steve: yeah, 'cause he isn't going to use that phone number or that e-mail account ever again because he's been outed with that. so some of you look at the e-mail, are skeptical. maybe this is one of those things the administration has done like they have in the past to make them look good. ron says, they outed the numbers just as they see the program works. judge, that's to your point. >> andrew: yes. and jane in florida, loose lips sink ships. jane, you're making a good
point. are these loose lips loose in order to make the president look good? >> steve: yeah. >> gretchen: and at the same time, it's being considered by both sides of the aisle, democrats and republicans, a major threat. so we stay tuned. yesterday jay carney, spokesperson for the president, would not rule out that this particular attack could be on u.s. soil. >> andrew: congressman louis gohmert will be here in a couple minutes. he's been all over this. conservative republican critical of the spying. >> steve: we want to know about the spying, but you don't have to spill all the beans. i got an e-mail from somebody in washington, d.c. that reminded me that during the bush years when things would get hot, they would quietly close an embassy for a day or two unless things got ratcheted up, then they would reopen. they wouldn't announce to the bad guy, hey, we reopened. in other words, that's just saying, hit us, we're open now. but they did things much different in the bush years, where it was quiet. this administration likes to take a bow. >> andrew: speaking of your
friends in dc, do you know that the secretary of health and human service, kathleen sebelius, had assured us -- i almost can't say this with a straight face -- that insurance rates will not go up under obamacare? maybe she should just watch our show. we've already had guests on who already received letters telling them the increase is coming. is she lying? >> gretchen: because they -- i guess we'd have to get her on the show to ask that. but we have had guests on a couple weeks ago where they received letters from their insurance companies saying as a result of the affordable care act, better known as obamacare, your rates will go up. here is a gentleman who had a letter from blue cross, blue shield, dan malloy. this is dan, the letter to dan. >> steve: from blue cross, blue shield. >> gretchen: we want you to know that your health care coverage will be affected by the health reform law taking effect in january effective august 1, 2013. nut rate for your blue options is $1,478.
>> andrew: per month? >> steve: that was a lot more than he was paying and when he got it, his jaw dropped. he joined us on "fox & friends". >> i thought that i was getting a rate decrease because the affordable care act, 'cause when they bill you, they bill you two months in advance. so what they do in the letter is they give you the premium of one month. so when you extrapolate the numbers and realize gee, that's only a one-month payment, it's pretty shocking when you see the two-month bill. 21.7% increase, if i continue to receive increases like that over five years, i'll pay more in health care expenses in the fifth year than the average median income of the american worker. >> steve: that's crazy. >> andrew: this is what happens when the government tries to tell businesses how to operate their businesses. so the government says starting a year from now, you can't raise premiums no matter what your costs are? all of them are going to go up now. rather than letting the free market set the premiums by
saying you can't raise letter, everything goes up today. what this poor gentleman is going through, unfortunately, will attack the middle class. >> steve: right. but sebelius came out yesterday and said the information statements put out at the state level are just factually inaccurate. that's because ohio came out last week and said, you know what? it looks like the rate for individual policies in ohio will rise 41% next year. so sebelius came out and said, that's not true. we'll see. >> gretchen: a crazy story for you. one of the teens was a local beauty queen accused of throwing bombs. ainsley earhart has that story. >> among the arrested teen-agers is kendra mckinsey gill. she is a local beauty queen crowned miss riverton back in june and then scheduled to compete in the miss utah pageant next year. police say she and three friends terrorized their small town of riverton over the weekend.
the four 18-year-olds admitted to buying plastic bottles, aluminum foil and chemicals to make these bombs and then go on a joy ride around their town and throw them at houses. >> they were actually throwing these at people with the intent to cause harm, from what i understand. so with that intent to cause harm to either people or property, this goes well beyond teenage prank. >> the teen-agers were arrested on suspicion of detonating incendiary devices. there were no injuries and no major damage reported. back to you, steve, gretchen and the judge. >> steve: what a story. ainsley, thank you very much. >> andre embassies instead of fighting back, congressman lease gohmert from the lone star state sarks hey, it makes america look like a bunch of cowards. there he isers he's next. >> gretchen: he is one frame away from a perfect game when this happened. imagine this. >> oh, my -- oh, no. holy cow. did you see that is this. >> gretchen: so what happened next? did he get another chance?
we'll let you know. >> the united states has issued a global travel alert to americans throughout the month of august because of threats from al-qaeda. they say this particular danger in parts of the middle east, like kuwait and baghdad. well, there go my summer travel plans. i might go to the resort in baghdad this year. gee, this is sad fighting constipation by eating healthier, drinking plenty of water, but still not getting relief? try dulcolax laxative tablets. dulcolax is comfort-coated for gentle, over-night relief. dulcolax. predictable over-night relief you can count on.

our next guest says it's the white house policies that got us into the situation in the first place. joining us now, texas congressman louis gohmert. congressman, it's a pleasure. welcome. >> always good to be with you. >> andrew: what policies of this white house got us into a position where benghazi can happen and overnight, we have to shut down 19 embassies in the middle east? >> it's this administration's idea that you can go give a pretty speech and apologize really well and then everybody will love you, which it has not happened. we've lost credibility in muslim nations under this president. then the other thing, in answer to the question, what difference does it make at this point, if you don't get to the bottom of why our security was breached in benghazi, just like we never got to the bottom of why the embassies were bombed under president clinton, then you have to close your embassies like a bunch of cowards. >> andrew: what difference does it make was said by secretary clinton when she was testifying before a senate committee when they asked her about what
happened in benghazi. >> that's right. >> andrew: what do you think happened in benghazi? what awful truth are they trying to hide? >> i don't know, but it -- i mean, the story has been out there, gee, we were running guns and that's why he met with the diplomat from turkey, talking about chris stevens. we don't know, and that's why we need to get to the bottom of it. there continues to be a cover-up about benghazi and it is important to know how our security was breached, how did we go so terribly wrong, how did we leave these people out there to die and not send help for 20 hours. those are the things we need to get to the bottom of and if we did, judge, you don't have to close your embassies like cowards and go running off. >> andrew: the president will be in office for another three years. do you expect any changes in foreign policy? >> if we do our jobs in congress, he's going to have to change his policies and show a little strength instead of just nice speeches and running. >> andrew: all right. switching gears, the nsa is now
sharing meta data with law enforcement agencies. you and i have a common background. we're judges before we did what we now do. >> right. >> andrew: is this legal? >> well, the supreme court says if a third party has your phone records, then maybe you don't have a right to privacy. judge, if it is legal, it's still very, very wrong. the 4th amendment should require them to have probable cause before they grab all our phone logs and of course, we were told, oh, it's only the log, it's only the meta data. they're getting more than that, we finds out. it's been publicly revealed. >> andrew: you voted about two weeks ago on the floor of the house of representatives to stop the nsa from sweeping everybody 's phone records to go after bad guys when they have -- but to stop reading e-mail of the rest of us. you did that in defines of republican leadership -- defiance of the republican leadership and the white house.
why did you do that? >> because it's not right what they're doing. we had all this debate. this stuff they're coming out with now about gee, we got this information from yemen, judge, that was where it was supposed to be used. it was never intended to allow them to sweep all the data from phone calls here in the united states. it was never supposed to be for that. >> andrew: congressman gohmert, keep fighting the fight, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> andrew: next, the top party school revealed and parents, this one is going to shock you. mortgage rates are up. so are closing costs. how can you get the best deal on your dream home? our next guest knows. she flipped her first house at age 17. wasn't that long ago. be right back. ♪

you have known real estate inside and out. when you were 17 years old, a lot of people worried about their first car or going to something else in life. what did you do? >> at 17 i flipped my first property. >> steve: of course! >> to be honest with you, looking back, i don't know how i did it. i was so young. and then i obtained my real estate license at age 18. so real estate is my passion. that's why i'm really excited to be launching this new show today. >> steve: speak of the new show, it is called "hot listings miami." it will be on the style network. we have a clip. do you want to watch? >> i'd love to. >> when you're part of the team, everything needs to be top notch. we can't afford to have any mistakes. the landscape is spectacular. i noticed all the flowers, they have a beautiful scent. that's jasmine. >> don't you know -- >> she gives it because jasmine makes you relax. >> no, no. it awakens sexuality.

they've got 250 jobs open right now. really the pay can be a great range, 30,000 up to $100,000. they're mostly expanding in the eastern and southwestern united states. you can imagine that's where we get a lot of our storms this year. they also do mold repair and things like that. but again, a tough hurricane season means somebody like this company is going to be very busy in the next couple of months. >> gretchen: med line industry? >> this is surgical products. they make surgical products and they sell surgical products. everything for the operating room. they've got 200 jobs open now. but they need not just people that can work with the products, engineers, designers, but they need people to actually sell the products. so if you got sales experience, this could be a good opportunity for you. they also are looking at 10% growth rate over the next year. we're seeing the health care industry is changing so much right now, especially with obamacare and the exchanges and everyone is kind of scrambling. but they are still growing. they're really expanding in georgia and houston, texas of all places. >> gretchen: now for people who may have an internship this
summer and think it won't lead to anything, northwestern mutual hires them. >> 45% of their managers right now were interns and they've got a huge internship program. 63% of americans say they need help financial planning. they're not prepared for their financial future. shocking to awful us. but they are a financial services company. they want to recruit more than 5500 financial pros for the entire year. but 3,000 internships. even if you're getting out of school or career changes, an internship may be kind of -- what a bummer, i'm 35, 40, i'm interning, really? but it can be a step into the door and a step into a full time paying job and sometimes that's what people have to do, unfortunately. >> gretchen: good advice. so when people go back to work, then they needomebody to take care of their kids, the goddard school has jobs. >> this is early childhood development. this is education, this is a franchise, something that parents pay to send their children to go to.
but they work with anyone from infants, small babies up to school age children. they need teachers, teachers assistants and also have ownership opportunities. number one child care franchise in the united states right now. the states they're expanding in are california, illinois, texas, washington. >> gretchen: and safe technology. >> electrical technology systems. 350 jobs, wisconsin, missouri, minnesota, oklahoma, georgia. 350 jobs. average employee here makes about 22 bucks an hour. not bad at all. you can make from 10 to 35 per hour depending on your skill set. managers can make 50 grand. >> gretchen: thanks so much. we'll see you next week. >> you bet. >> gretchen: let's go out to steve. >> steve: thank you very much. next up, it's day two of the great american game show week here on "fox & friends" where we're playing -- come on, let her spin the wheel of fun! first on this date in 1989, you2

>> gretchen: good morning, everybody. today is tuesday, august 6, 2013. i'm gretchen carlson. thanks so much for spending your time with us today. fox news alert, terror threat against america just getting worse now. state department rushing to evacuate another embassy overnight and word there may be terrorists in place just waiting for those orders to strike. >> steve: the grand ole party, the gop takes a stand against the main stream media, giving cnn and abc an ultimatum over their plans to prop up hillary clinton ahead of the 2016 election. >> andrew: and just how private are your cell phone conversations? that may not be for you to decide. the government on the verge of doing it for us. i'll explain it in this hour. "fox & friends" hour three right now.
>> andrew: god love you. >> steve: did i say abc? i meant nbc and cnn have gotten an ultimatum by the grand old party regarding their hillary clinton movie. wait 'til you hear it. look who is here, judge napolitano. >> andrew: what a pleasure to be here! i feel like an overwound main spring on a cheap watch. >> gretchen: what? [ laughter ] if ohm that would have been the quotation, we would have won. >> andrew: i was a little hyped. radio city music hall. right under our noses. >> gretchen: let me bring you some of the medicine lines because we have new details with a story that unfolded. a man accused of shooting up a town hall in pennsylvania. three people died. the man had an ongoing dispute with the town. his property was condemned. he showed up at the meeting and started shooting before being tackled by a hero. >> approached the township building, he began to fire into
the township building through the windows of the building. he continued to advance on the building firing as he walked forward, firing through the windows. >> gretchen: local newspaper reporter chris webber was at the meeting and told his editor, quote, the scene that got my attention, plaster flying out, blowing out through the walls. i heard more than ten shots. it was automatic, like a string of fire crackers. there were real heros, people who did not consider their own lives. three other people were shot. the suspect shot in the take down, but he's been treated and is now in police custody. if you plan to supply today, like chuck woolery, be to do deal with delays because of the massive computer glitch. it impacted airports around the world. some airlines are warning ripple effect, those delays could still affect you today. if you have to fly, you can call
your airline and go on-line and check the status of your flight. the driver of a truck for the "boston globe" involved in a horrific crash. it was caught on camera. a cadillac hits the truck. now watch this. it goes all the way over the guardrail to the exit ramp below. the truck completely mangled. the driver, though, managed to escape. the woman in the other car has been charged with drunk driving and her license had been suspended ten times before. steven spielberg officially dropping out of the movie "american sniper." it's based on a book by chris kyle who was killed last year. he was supposed to be played by bradley cooper. the reason spielberg apparently will not be doing the move we is because his vision did not align with warner brothers' budget. kyle was known as america's deadliest marksman and he was shot and killed in a gun range earlier this year. those are your headlines. >> steve: meanwhile, our top story once again, a fox news alert. you know that they closed those
19 embassies and diplomatic posts around the arab world. this morning apparently the u.s. embassy has been ordered evacuated by the department of state and personnel have been flown out of that particular country. also the united kingdom doing the same thing. now i think we now have a better idea what exactly the threat is. apparently the master bomb makers have come up with something new. it could be the same guy who came up with the underwear bomb, the body bomb, which causes people to become what they refer to as franken bombers. now what they've done is somebody has figured out, we can take regular clothes, dip them in some sort of explosive, and when they're dry, they're undetectable, but the clothes explode. crazy. and true. >> gretchen: and also as steve was alluding to, the man who made the underwear bomb and surgically implanted bombs is probably behind this kind of technology. the scary thing is that it can
go through airport security and apparently not be detected. the other scary thing to report this morning is that at least one or two new sources this morning saying that apparently the terrorists are in place and they're just ready to say go when somebody tells them to go. >> andrew: why is all this happening and why is the american foreign policy seem to be one of closing embassies down? we spoke earlier with congressman louis gohmert of texas who had strong opinions on this. >> you don't get to the bottom of why our security was breached in benghazi, just like we never got to the bottom of why the embassies were bombed under president clinton, then you have to close your embassies like a bunch of cowards. >> steve: what's extraordinary is that we do know some of the operational details regarding the -- they're worried about exploding clothes and stuff like that, western interests over there probably. but what's disturbing to some is the fact that somebody could be from the administration -- has leaked all of these details
about how we got the intercept. remember it used to be back in the day, we'd get intercepts and we would just find out about a general terror warning. but now apparently somebody has leaked the intercept was between al-zarqawi hare in pakistan with the guy who runs al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula, someplace in yemen. the fact that we know they were in contact, judge, burns a source. >> andrew: how absurd and how counterproductive and how absent leadership is it for somebody in the american government to say, you two crimes, the bomb makers and your boss, we've got your phone numbers and we've been listening to you. why tell them that? they're not americans. they are at war with us. >> steve: they're never going to use that phone again. >> andrew: why tell them what we know about them? yet the government in an effort to show that its spying works, told them. >> gretchen: we don't know who the source is. fox news was able to confirm that through their sources and luckily they don't have to give the names of their sources or they wouldn't have them.
but in the meantime, chad sweet, the former homeland security and c.i.a. official was on "the o'reilly factor" program last night and he had these thoughts on that. >> the more disturbing aspect of this is that to release any information that acknowledges that we actually had the phone numbers and intelligence for lea headquarters and the leader of al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula, we've now just burned that source. those phones are gone and those leaders will not use them again. so we have now, unfortunately, cut off a major source of intelligence on the two of the top leaders. to do that, it takes a very significant threat and it's now reality that we're going to have to find new sources of intel. >> steve: yeah. and that makes it very troubling. you got to drum up something else. we got an e-mail from somebody who said isn't it interesting ever since this threat level was revealed, we haven't heard anybody talk about, from the administration -- how benghazi is a phony scandal. i also saw an e-mail from
somebody who said that the e-mail closing could be the administration's way of just getting us to accept this massive nsa spying that happens not only internationally, but also on all of us. >> gretchen: or it could be a real terrorist threat. >> steve: it could. >> andrew: but we know from history the government likes to gin things up when it wants to -- >> steve: take a bow. >> andrew: or clamp down on freedom. >> gretchen: we told awe lot during the election cycle about how the rnc, republican national committee, sometimes took hits even from people within their own party saying hey, you need to be more aggressive. you got to try and go out and be a more aggressive in social media and messaging to combat how effective the obama administration was at campaigning. now they really -- i think they really came out and gave a strong message yesterday. the rnc chair, has said as long as cnn and other stations wants to put together a movie about hillary clinton.
rnc feels it's unfair and will boycott movies. >> steve: and he says it hurts not only the republicans, but also hurts the democrats. think about if you're somebody else, say you're joe biden, would you want the hillary clinton pro-hillary movie to be out there? >> andrew: here is the chairman of the republican national committee on sean hannity last night? >> the fact is, you've got two networks that are potentially spending millions of dollars promoting a person that they know is at least doing the dance and getting ready for a run for president and i think it's about time that our party stands up and protects the party and our candidates from networks that are not in the business of promoting our party. they're not in the business of promoting our candidate. they're not in the business of doing anything but promoting the democratic party. and i'm not going to sit around and watch this happen anymore. >> steve: he also said that nbc and cnn were hillary clinton campaign operatives.
them's fighting words. let's see what happens. >> gretchen: let's talk about the privacy of your cell phone. because much has been made in the last couple of weeks and months about the nsa and listening or at least tracking your phone calls and your other information with regard to e-mails. so the question this morning is, how private is your cell phone? the supreme court may get to decide that question very, very soon. it's a good thing we have the judge on the couch. >> andrew: here is another -- the chief justice of the united states, john roberts, was cashly talking to members of the press and they asked him what he thought. he said, i use one just like everybody else. pretty soon i and my fellow justices are going to have to decide just how private these are. so listen, justices of the supreme court watch television and read the blogs and read newspapers like the rest of us and they know the magnitude of this nsa spying is eventually going to come right to their doorstep. >> steve: sure. and the question is, the expectation of privacy. if you're arrested and your cell
phone is right there and it's turned on, can a cop go ahead and just scroll through and see all the stuff, because is it an unreasonable search of your private life? >> andrew: reasonable. is it reasonable that the government has to spy on 300 million americans in order to catch two jerks in yemen? that's what the court is going to have to answer. >> gretchen: don't they already do that, because for example, if somebody is involved in a texting car accident, would the cell phone be evidence then? would it be okay to already -- aren't they already doing that? >> andrew: if someone is arrested with a cell phone in their pocket and the police have reason to believe they may have been texting, then the police get a warrant to go into the cell phone. same thing here. if the government thinkses the steve and i are talking about making a bomb, they get a warrant to listen to our phone calls. they don't get a dragnet to listen to 300 million phone calls in the expectation we would be the needle in the hay stack. 4th amendment was written to prevent that.
>> steve: plus the fact that as long as your battery is in your cell phone, thanks to the gps feature, they can track everywhere you have been. >> andrew: as long as the battery is in the cell phone, even when it's off, they can track where you are. it can record what you say and if it's looking at you, it can take a picture. >> gretchen: that's a little too close, judge. too early in the morning. all right. >> andrew: look good. >> gretchen: all right. let me tell you what's coming up on the show. new accusation, is a secret government agency funneling information from intelligence sources to launch criminal investigations against americans? it sounds complicated and that's why we have peter johnson, jr. here with the exclusive details coming up next. >> andrew: she's getting a blond bombshell a whole new meaning. beauty queen accused of -- gretchen, could this be -- throwing bombs? >> gretchen: i know nothing, judge. >> andrew: you heard that right this day calls you.

>> andrew: forget the constitution. our government found a better way to catch criminals. get the evidence first and worry about where it came from later. according to a report this week, the dea, drug enforcement administration, routinely gets top secret tips from the nsa and other intelligence agencies without a warrant from a judge. then it cooks up a new back story to cover up its source. fox news analyst peter johnson, jr. is here to discuss. >> you are my good friend. this is everything that you've been saying for years and you've written about, it's coming true. this is a shredding of the 4th amendment. what the dea is saying, we've gotten tips from the nsa, the national security agency, based on really illegal taps and surveillance and we said, we're giving it to them. they use that, but don't say where they got the information from and allegedly go get americans or bad guys. so they get a tip.
they don't say where it came from. they use a ruse or trick to say oh, yeah, we just happened to know that these folks were going to be here. they lock the people up, put them in jail and it's all coming from nsa surveillance. >> andrew: so the nsa illegally spying on innocent americans, if it hears -- >> or sometimes criminal americans. >> andrew: or sometimes criminal americans. not necessarily terrorists. they give this information to law enforcement and law enforcement is telling defense counsel where they got it, hiding it or lying about it? >> hiding and lying about it, according to reuters. and there is something called the special operations division. this is a collection of two dozen federal agencies, including the irs, the nsa, the department of homeland security, they provide information to local county and state law enforcement, but they say you can't say where you got it from. >> andrew: here is the defense from former justice department official, on with bret baier. i want you to listen.
>> this is a fairly common law enforcement technique that enables us to bring drug kingpins and other violent criminals to justice. but in a way that doesn't compromise our source or methods of intelligence gathering. >> andrew: it does compromise the constitution. >> if that's a common practice, then we're going to be releasing half the people in federal prisons on drug crimes and other crimes in this country. you tell me, judge napolitano, is that legal or constitutional to lie about the source of information, to say it's one thing when it's something else? >> andrew: most judges would throw out the prosecution and then the bad guy goes free because the government has lied. >> they're calling it parallel construction, as if it's a real legal concept. there is no such thing. you know what it's called? textalying. >> andrew: peter johnson, jr., always a pleasure. remember his famous confrontations?

a reporter did a lengthy profile on the publisher of the "washington post" a day before the paper announced it had been sold. the reporter missed what should have been a big scoop! the reporter says she was assigned the story a while ago, but didn't get to it until last month. okay, fine. and an escape artist about to be dropped from a plane at 14,000 feet chained inside a wooden coffin. anthony martin will attempt the stunt later today in illinois. he says he hopes to get out of the box within 40 seconds. he'll then open his chute and hopefully floats to safety. we all hope the same thing. good luck to you. judge, over to you and gretch. >> andrew: thank you. democrats have come a long way since the 2012 campaign when they routinely accused republicans of waging a war on women. >> gretchen: remember it started when rush limbaugh used a word that rhymes with smut, quite frankly. and democrats tried to then say that republicans were to blame at large. now the democrats like anthony
wiener, elliott spitzer and filner are waging a real war on women. many of the democrats are silent. is there a double standard? joining us is the executive producer of the independence women's forum with her thoughts. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> gretchen: so is there a double standard? >> absolutely. look, first of all, funny to me, absolutely hypocritical. but what's interesting is just how unabashed and unapologetic democrats and progressive feminist groups have been about this. we don't really expect nancy pelosi or any of the democratic leaders to get up there and call for anthony wiener to drop out of the race. but the progressive women's groups should be appalled by this and they are not taking a stand. emily's list, the nation, self-proclaimed feminist activists have said this doesn't counts. this philandering doesn't counts, as long as you support paid leave and prostitution it's okay. >> andrew: will this be reflected in voter attitudes, this november and next november when they realize how two-faced
many of these democrats are on this issue? >> that's the good question. i think that, look, democrats are so skilled at holding on to this war on women rhetoric, they've sort of muffled the conversation by nancy pelosi putting out her economic agenda. the best thing for republicans to do is not go tit for tat. they will lose every time. but what they could do is put out a very strong, positive economic message. i think that's the way they could sort of benefit come advice. and beyond. let's look at some of these cases. in 2012, harry reid condemned limbaugh, as we were talking about for those comments about sandra pluck, calling them basing to our country. but this month, anthony wiener's aide used similar words, there was no response from reid. >> right. first of all, rush limbaugh's comments were not exactly elevating in terms of sort of helping the public conversation. but of course we don't expect harry reid to really speak out here. but it's despicable.
of course he should say something about anthony wiener, elliott spitzer, bob filner. these men -- this is not just what's going on in someone's marriage, this is the way they're publicly treating women. bob filner, these are women on his staff. this is not something to be waved aside. and the fact that there hasn't been any public outcry looks ridiculous. >> andrew: in 2012, the head of the democrat national committee, criticized mitt romney for not condemning rush limbaugh's comments. but this month, not a word about the aide working for anthony wiener who made similar comments. how can they get away with this with a straight face? >> i know. the bottom line for them is how do we expand government? how do we have sort of unfettered abortion rights? how do we have bigger, more expensive, more intrusive washington? and if that means we have to put up with inappropriate twitter feeds or go along with pros tuition, then that's okay because ultimately they want to see government-run health care. they want to see expanded paid
leave. they want to see a raise in the minimum wage. and it's not okay to have an argument or conversation about these issues. these are sort of accepted widely now by the left as generally good for women when, in fact, there is a conversation to be had. >> gretchen: in 2012, president obama placed a personal phone call to miss fluke about rush limbaugh's comments and said it didn't belong in the public discourse. what about the aide to anthony wiener who was called a similar name. remember she wrote an article critical of the democrats' campaign, but there was no phone call there. is it dicey for a president to get involved in these kind of personal situations unless you're going to do it in both similar situations? >> i would think so. i think you and i both would think this was pretty calculated, mitt romneycal. i don't think anyone believed that president obama is so concerned about women unless we're talking about the women's votes. >> gretchen: i just wish that the women's groups would do what you're saying and to support all women no matter what. just take party affiliation out of the equation and support all women in these types of
situations. interesting thoughts this morning. thanks so much. >> andrew: thank you for joining us. after years of delay, we are now just about one hour away from the start of the fort hood shooting trial. we're live on the ground next. why the victims say they're being forced to suffer twice. >> gretchen: she's giving the phrase, blond bombshell -- why do i have to read this? >> andrew: i should have read this. >> gretchen: blond beauty accused of throwing bombs. you heard it. that's right the boys used double miles from their capital one venture card
to fly home for the big family reunion. you must be garth's father? hello. mother. mother! traveling is easy with the venture card because you can fly any airline anytime. two words. double miles! this guy can act. wanna play dodge rock? oh, you guys! and with double miles you can actuay use, you never miss the fun. beard growing contest and go! ♪ win! what's in your wallet? high fructose corn syrup from yoplait original and light, we were like, "sure. no problem!" and you were like, "thanks, but what about thick & creamy and whips!" and we were like, "done and done!
>> over the weekend washington, d.c. hosted a meeting for people interested in traveling to mars. it got a little weird when biden showed up in his buzz lightyear costume, and even weirder when he had no idea they were meeting about going to mars. >> gretchen: i haven't seen him in a while. >> andrew: he's still around. >> gretchen: okay. >> steve: maybe he's been on another planet. >> gretchen: we have some headlines for you. police are considering whether to file charges against an owner of a snake. a african python escaped its
cage, got up into the vice president laying system -- vice president laying system. it's -- ventilation system. it's believed the snake strangled two boys as they slept. she's accused of throwing actual bombs. kendra mckenny gill -- mckenzie gill scheduled to compete in the miss utah projectent next year. police say they admitted to buying plastic bottles, foil and enough household chemicals to make bombs, drive around town and throw them at homes. >> actually throwing these at people with the intent to cause harm, from what i understand. so with that intent to cause harm, to either people or property, this goes well beyond a teenage prank. >> gretchen: no one was hurt and no damage was reported. alex rodriguez slapped with a record suspension of more than 200 games. but he was still allowed to play ball last night. in chicago, the reception from the crowd, not welcoming.
(booing) >> gretchen: a-rod suspended for his ailed connection to a clinic which sold performance enhancing drugs. he's going to go ahead with his appeals even though he's admitted to using them in the past. >> i'm sure there has been mistakes made along the way. i'm here now. i'm a human being. i've had two hip surgery, two knee surgeries. i'm fighting for my life. i have to defend myself. if i don't defend myself, no one else will. >> gretchen: the appeal will keep him on the field through the end of the season. he caught his last predator for nbc. >> have a seat. >> what do you think it was? >> nothing. >> gretchen: reporter chris hanson best known for the "to catch a predator" show is out
after 20 years. the network decided not to renew his contract. he's pursuing hosting and producing projects that will be announced in the coming months. those are your headlines. >> steve: it used to be to scare somebody, you would say mike wallace is here to see you. then it became chris hanson is here to see you. now he needs a job. meanwhile, annex stream weather a-- an extreme weather alert. hurricane packing big winds right at the threshold. >> hovering around hurricane. but it is classified as a hurricane. hurricane hen henryette. >> good news for hawaii. the bad news is we have rain and wind expected there over the next several days. eventually as the area of low pressure approaches hawaii. but the good news is that there is very cold water that's not going to support this hurricane. so we anticipate that the storm will continue to weaken over the next several days across the pacific ocean.
right now it's a hurricane, maximum sustained winds at 75 miles per hour. across the lower 48, we have showers and storms expected, especially across the center of the country. we're even talking the potential for severe weather in terms of damaging winds in excess of 60 miles an hour and hail. isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out. across parts of minnesota, wisconsin, down into sections of kansas. temperature wise, it's going to be a hot day across texas. we're talking triple digits. 105 in san antonio. a number of heat heat heat advi. in new york city, back inside, i want to toss to you. a beautiful day. we have sunshine, temperatures will be pleasant. in the low 80s this afternoon. >> steve: thank you very much. also on her map it looks like it's going to be warm and hot in ohio. >> andrew: i wonder why. >> steve: well, a completely unrelated story, that's because
of the summer. but last week the state of ohio said that because of obamacare, the rates for individual policies will rise 41% next year. they also said small business coverage is going to go up 18% in the coming year. that's why kathleen sebelius, the secretary for the department of health and human services said yesterday, the information statements put out at the state level are just factually incorrect. she's saying people are -- >> andrew: he got it in writing. he got it in a letter. he got it from blue cross, blue shield. he got it from the people that are going to be sending him a bill. >> gretchen: you're talking about dan malloy who was on this show. he's a regular private citizen who received this letter. here is in part what it said. he want with you to know that your health care coverage will be affected by the health reform law. the new rate is 1478. that came as a shock to dan. >> steve: that's a month. >> gretchen: he believes -- he thought the letter was -- he was
being sent the letter to show him his rates would be going down. he was on the show a couple weeks ago and here was his reaction. >> i thought that i was getting a rate decrease because the affordable care act. when they bill you, they bill you two months in advance. so what they do in the letter is they give you the premium of one month. so when you extrapolate the numbers and realize, gee, that's only a one month payment, it's pretty shocking when you see the two-month bill. 21.7% increase. if i continue to receive increases like that over the next five years, i'll pay more in health care expenses in the fifth year than the average median income of the american worker. >> steve: we ran that sound bite from mr. malloy a couple of hours ago and since then, we've received a number of e-mails from you out there who said i got the same letter in my state. going to 18, 19, 20%. >> andrew: that is the average in ohio. it's not just this gentleman and his family. it's all of the middle class. >> gretchen: it's a public
relations nightmare for kathleen sebelius as she travels around the country, as more people come to the town hall situations. did you see the other day that they were having some sort of a seminar to get the message out again and only one person showed up. this is a tough public relations fight for her right now and she's got a big job in front of her because more and more people are getting those letters. >> andrew: switching gears, the victims of the fort hood shooting must suffer twice. first they were shot. today after years of delay, those victims will finally take the first step toward justice as nidal malik hasan's trial begins. joining us live from fort hood, our reporter on the ground, dan. what is the latest? >> well, good morning. we are now less than 90 minutes away from opening statements in what promises to be a very emotional and unusual military trial. one of the big questions about
today's proceedings, will major nidal malik hasan make an opening statement? he is representing himself, having dismissed all of the defense attorneys assigned to his case by the army. hasan accused of murdering 13 people, wounding dozens more during the shooting rampage here on the fort hood army post. if convicted, he is facing a death sentence. the presiding judge in the case yesterday seated the all-officer jury known as a panel in the military. the judge has also indicated to hasan that he could at some point be allowed to take the witness stand and testify in his own defense. he has not denied at any time being the gunman in the attack. he has on a number of occasions, expressed anti-american views and radical islamic beliefs. this is dan godwin live at fort hood, back to you. >> gretchen: thanks very much. coming up, today the latest
terror threat, body bombs and they can't be detected by the airport scanners. so just how worried should we all be? the former deputy director of the tsa will join us, coming up next. >> andrew: it's a new hair raising new rule, a school taking students' hair to test for drugs. has the school gone too far? we report. you decide ♪ [ female announcer ] the best thing about this bar it's not a candy bar. 130 calories

folks in the business refer to as franken bombers, where some suicide bomber would hide an explosive in their body, they're surgically or put it in a place where it's hard to finds. that's a problem for the tsa. >> that's certainly a problem for the tsa. but you have to understand that in order for a suicide bomber to be successful, you have to have explosive material, a detonator and a power source. they have the capability to look for all three of those things. the explosive material may be inside the individual suicide bomber, but there is going to be an incision someplace. that means possibly some explosive material would be detectable by the k-9 teams out there. you also have to have, as i said, the detonator and power source. the challenge to have them without metal. the metal detector has a chance of finding them.
so between the background checks of secure flights on passengers, you have a possible chance of finding this new threat. but there is no question, it's a serious challenge. >> steve: absolutely is. if they don't find the detonator or wire, then you're in all sorts of trouble. the news this morning is that apparently -- it's being referred to as an ingenious liquid explosive, which is currently undetectable, they figured a way to dip ordinary clothes into a liquid and make them explosive once they're dry. so it would look like just a regular suit or tie or something like that, but it's explosive? >> al-qaeda has been spending time in the chemistry lab overt past several years. they've had a long interest in liquid explosives because they're harder to detect. they're more potent and concentrated. and now they seem to have found a way to get the liquid explosives on to clothing. again, it makes it much more difficult to detect, but we also
know that it's not predictable. which is to say body bombs and this kind of new bomb, we don't know exactly what catastrophic effect they might have. whether they will work appropriately or as intended. >> steve: sure. no doubt about it, al-qaeda would like to hit us again. what keeps you up at night? what are you worried about? >> i certainly worry about explosive materials and the full component of a bomb getting by the checkpoint on to an aircraft and causing catastrophic damage. there are no guarantees. thralls a risk and -- there is always a risk and these are things worth staying up, especially for the professionals at the tsa and across dhs. >> steve: sure. tom blank, formerly with the tsa, thank you very much. >> thanks for having me. >> steve: all right. dozen minutes before the top of the hour of the it was our favorite story from the weekend. the cleveland browns giving a

>> gretchen: did you happen to see this? a touching moment this weekend at cleave lands browns stadium when five-year-old ryan ran a 40-yard touchdown as his friends, family and the players cheered him on. you see ryan fought cancer and he beat it. that touchdown was a celebration of two careers in remission. ryan, his mother and father and sister are all my guests this morning. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> gretchen: ryan, wow. you scored a 40-yard touchdown? >> yeah. >> gretchen: yeah. tell me about the football that's in your hand. >> it was the football you got the touchdown with, wasn't it? >> yeah. >> gretchen: it's almost as big as you. i understand this was part of the little hero's program, right, dad? >> yeah. the cleveland browns contacted them and then they contacted us and asked us if we would want to bring ryan down to meet the players at training camp and
then that following saturday, run a touchdown with the team. obviously the immediate answer was yes. >> gretchen: angela, i know your family struggled through so much in the last couple of years. i can't imagine being a mom myself, finding out that your child has lung cancer, which was the news that you received when he was just two years old. what has it meant to have organizations like this that allow him to have these amazing moments? >> it means a lot for our family. it happened right after his third birthday. he had just turned three and the type of cancer is an extremely rare pediatric cancer. it has affected less than 400 children in the world to date. so he's a rare gem indeed. >> gretchen: the good news today is that he's been in remission, right, after chemotherapy? >> yes. they don't exactly call it remission, but he is two years
out of treatment and he has three more years to go before he's considered cured. >> gretchen: was this a -- did he say football was his favorite sport, so this is how it all came about? >> football, he's always enjoyed football. he's always enjoyed watching the browns. he's never expressed making a touchdown, but as soon as we told him about it, he was so excited. he kept telling people how excited he was. he was going to run a touchdown and it was definitely a highlight of our lives. >> gretchen: obviously something he'll never forget. i understand one of the players, i think this was a video here, held him up in the end zone after he scored the touchdown. ryan, you have some sort of a dance that you do now, a football kind of touchdown dance? can you show me that? all right. >> there you go. do your dance. >> gretchen: let me see it.
[ cheering ] >> gretchen: that's a clean dance. i don't think you get a penalties for that. >> who taught you that dance? >> trend richardson. >> gretchen: oh, i get it. football is my favorite sport, too. ryan, all the best to you and to your parents and to your little sister. what a great and rewarding experience. great to meet you all. >> thank you. >> gretchen: have a fantastic week. what a great story. a good way toned the show, almost. more "fox & friends" just three minutes away good job!
